- Describe a time when a family member asked you for help You should say:

- Who asked you for help
- How you helped
- And explain how you felt about it
A time when a family member asked me for help happened when my grandma asked me to teach her how to use the smartphone. I bought my grandma a smartphone as her birthday gift when I was in the senior year of university. Since it was the first time that she had got such an intelligent device, she had no idea of how to use it. Then, she called me to visit her at the weekend and most importantly, I was supposed to be her teacher. As for how I helped her, I made full preparations including drawing the steps on paper in advance, making notes beside each button, and recording the instructions step by step on my phone to serve as audio-visual learning materials. When I got my grandma’s home, I taught her slowly and patiently, from how to open the device, how to make a video call to how to take pictures and selfies. I even downloaded various selfie apps for her since my grandma was the kind of lady who is obsessed with the latest trend. After two hour’s teaching, she seemed to get all my points and began to use it without my assistance. Speaking of how I felt about it, I got good kicks out of the whole process. I really enjoyed showing her how to use the phone because my grandma used to be an English teacher who always criticized my academic performance when I was in high school. Now, it was my turn to teach her, which made me feel that I had really grown up.
1.What can children help parents with?
Well, there are plenty of things that children can do to help their parents as long as such things are not beyond their capabilities. To be more specific, they can help do the cleaning work at home like sweeping the floor or wishing the dishes after meal. This can not only help relieve the burden of parents but also can cultivate the ability to live an independent life later on.
2.What are the benefits of children helping their parents?
For one thing, helping parents can relieve their burdens since they are occupied by the heavy workloads in the daytime and doomed to be exhausted when getting back home. Then, parents can strongly feel the love from their children. Furthermore, these young minds are able to learn how to live an independent life through helping their parents do some cleaning work at home.
3.Should parents reward their children when they help others?
I think it depends on the child’s age. Appropriate rewards, like some snacks or a chance to the amusement park, can be given to the children in kindergarten or primary school, which can be regarded as a way to cultivate these young minds to be aware of the importance of helping others. However, as children grow up, parents should not give rewards any longer because they should let their kids learn that offering others a hand is not for the rewards but out of kindness.
4.Do parents help children because they need their children to help them when they are old?
I don’t think so. Parents * taking care of their children or helping them is part of their responsibilities to be guardians for their offspring. If the adults choose to give birth to a kid, they are supposed to play the role of parents well and fully fulfill their obligations. Besides, it is the love for their children that compels the parents to be willing to do everything for the kids but not the possible rewards from the children.
